Dryer Duct Cleaning

Question: Which common household appliance starts over 20% of house fires in Canadian Homes each year?* If you guessed dryer, you're right!

The same people you trust your chimney with can now keep your dryer safe with annual dryer vent cleaning and system inspections. The dryer is an often-forgotten workhorse that we rely upon each week. Proper maintenance of your dryer is important not just to extend the life of a costly appliance, but to keep your home and family safe from the dryer-related fires that can occur from a poorly maintained appliance.

A clean dryer vent system means:

  • Your clothes dry more fully and evenly.
  • The heat and humidity generated by your dryer will exit the house properly and not linger in your home.
  • You save on energy bills because the appliance runs efficiently

According to the US National Fire Protection Association:

  • Dryers and washing machines were responsible for in 1 in 22 home fires.
  • That translates to an estimated 16,800 house fires.
  • The rate of incidents are roughly the same, regardless of whether the appliance is powered by gas or electricity.

Here are five tips that will help you keep your dryer safe:

  • Having a professional install your dryer ensures that the appliance is properly installed and any potential issues are identified and remedied before use.
  • Never use your dryer without the lint catcher firmly in place.
  • Follow your manufacturer's instructions to not overload the dryer.
  • Inspect your outdoor vent flaps move freely and open when the dryer is operating.
  • Keep an eye on your clothes. If your clothes take longer to dry, it may indicate a problem with the appliance.
